Biggest question is where these e-mail names came from? A directory? A
real opt-in situation? If so then you wouldn't physically have them. These
addresses may not be accurate if they were collected a long time ago and
the list has not been "cleaned."

Too confusing - one opt-in one choice is the best way to go

It all depends. Sounds like you're doing "targeted spam" which may not get
too many complaints. Do a few thousand and see how it goes. You know,
test, test, test.
